Came to light 230923, in the central part of Sweden( Ljusnarsberg). The photo is not the best, but is it possible to identify?

Yes, seems to be Gigalimosina flaviceps. R2+3 very long, R4+5 sinuate, thickened F1 and F3, but wait for confirmation of an expert.
I often find them in caves, rarely outside.
